Okay, made small progress (been just lazy)

 

Got those support brackets for the throttle linkages machined from aluminium. At the same time adjusted each butterfly mechanically as close of each other as possibly (little bit tricky with these atpower bodies)

Got some "MOT" mufflers to get the noice down to an reasonable level for the inspector. These are just some dynomax superturbo mufflers, ugly as hell and restrictive also. Just welded them on the car with mig, no need for any better. Black paint was needed to get them look little bit nicer (ugly still)

Started to make a vent holes in the front valance, to help radiator and mainly two electric fans to get more air and be more efficient. Copied the style from escort mk1 front valance holes. I was bit nervous cutting this NOS replacement front panel, but this was needed. It's now roughly cutted and then hammered to shape. Made a jig from plate steel which I then used to hammer against. Came out pretty good. Still need to finish the angle of the lip and continue that center "support" lips upwards more.

Finished hammering the hole edges, they came out pretty good, i'm not an bodywork guy at all.

Friend of mine did come and paint this, i'm not so keen on painting (I can do it tought, and pretty decent quality also, but he likes this kind of stuff to do, so better this way). In the end this is success for me, like I said i'm not a bodywork guy and it was little bit intimitating to start cut that front valance.
